    Entitlements are what they call things like Medicaid/Medicare, Food Stamps, Welfare and things like that.

    Federal Spending is what the federal government spends money on things such as (but not limited to) disaster relief, paying for the war, paying for things such as NASA, improvements on national parks....basically anything that the government pays for

    Class Warfare is a little harder to define, as it means different things to different people. In general class warfare means either pitting one class of people against another or going after one class of people in particular.

    Pretty much Republicans don't agree that the wealthy should have to pay more taxes, instead they want to cut paying for the things I listed above,

    The rich, poor gap has widen , The great middle class are disappearing. The republicans want to even help the rich class more. They have lied over weapon's of mass destruction's, lied over health care, now they are lying over what fairness in taxes. Why cant we have honest debates on the truth for a change. The rich already have the money, but are investing it overseas in commies nations. Ford right now is building a big plant in China, Has China built any plants in USA lately. They class war going on right now , its rich class destroying labor UNIONS to push middle class back to poor class.
